It wouldn't be the initial bite that would be the problem it's when he tries to tear the flesh off, that's when you run into problems!

You're probably right, the little fella doesn't look crazy powerful yet but looks can be deceiving.

For Christ's sake, it's things like this that are going to be the end of an absolutely brilliant part of exotic animal keeping.

You'll probably find that this is a direct breach of his Public Liability Insurance, for starters. Not taping the jaws together is also likely a breach of the licence conditions. Exposing the general public to Dangerous Wild Animals requires risk assessments, additional insurance cover and protocols, of which I'd put money on neither of these things existing.

Local Authorities have been known to view these forums, so posting threads like this isn't a good idea. This is a stupid post for multiple reasons.

Lovely little caiman.
They can move surprisingly fast at dinner time though.

I agree though, probably wasn't the most sensible thing to take it to a pub setting but it is a nice specimen and looks feisty enough.

I'm sure you'll get over it.

Showing off an unrestrained Caiman in a public house during business hours, which is clearly in direct breach of PLI and licencing conditions, and thus breaking the law, is not a good image for reptile keeping. Posting this on a forum puts the behaviour in the spot light, and it must be condemned.

Campaigns such as Hands Off Our Hobby mean absolutely nothing, if reptile keepers aren't prepared to stand up for what's right, even if it makes them unpopular!
